DCPS Camp Supports Summer Learning

dcps3 300DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (6/6/14) — The Daviess County Public Schools district is hosting Title I Learning Camps from 8 to 11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, June 9-20.

The camps are located at Meadow Lands Elementary School, 3500 Hayden Road, for children living on the east side of Daviess County; and at Sorgho Elementary School, 5390 Kentucky 56, for students living on the west side.

The camp is designed to provide support for students in kindergarten through grade 4 who have shown regression over extended school breaks and who attend Title I schools. (Title I schools are those that receive federal funding intended to remove barriers in education for disadvantaged children. To qualify for Title I funds, a school must have an at-risk student population greater than 40 percent of the school’s enrollment.)

“Students will be working on exciting and engaging math and reading activities that will provide a bridge between May and August,” said camp coordinator Caleb York, who serves as DCPS Title I / Achievement Gap Coordinator.

In addition to the instruction and support provided on site, participating children will have access to math and reading educational programs so they can continue learning at home until school starts in August.

The camp is provided free of charge to qualifying children. Bus transportation and nutritious breakfasts and lunches are also provided each day.

Our media partners are invited to visit Meadow Lands and/or Sorgho elementary schools June 9-20 to learn more about this camp and its goals of academic success.

For more information or to schedule interviews with camp instructors or parents who children are benefitting from this camp, contact Caleb York at (270) 852-7000 or (270) 570-3465, or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
